Favorite Quote:
"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven"- Ecclesiastes 3:1

They told me to sink, that's the only reason that I swam
Everyone knows that I care, and they know who I am. They told me to fail, so I forced myself to try
They always knew my tears, that's why I refused to cry
They told me to slip, so I stood on my feet. They told me to freeze, so I melted it with heat. I lost everything.
I gained nothing.
That's why I'm sitting here, I'm only sitting here.
I'm listening to the silence, that was never comforting me
I fell, because of someone else's two feet
I tried so much, that I never got the chance to fail
So when he offered me heaven, my first choice was hell
I let them define me, because of what they insinuated.
I tried so hard to not give them satisfaction, that it ended in self-hatred
Yes, they told to me fall
But, it was my decision to stay there.....................................
